429 (+0) cases / 6 deaths / 324 (+2) recovered
343 imported / DunmuFleet 31 / 55 indigenous
The press conference today was started with six watermelons, the watchers deduced it implied the sixth day of no new confirmed cases in a row. Obviously, we bet it!
The meaning of the watermelons were more deeply, it was used to encourage people to eat watermelons for helping farmers. After a while, many citizens posted pictures and said that they bought watermelons.
西瓜其實還有更深的用意，用來鼓勵大家買西瓜救農民。過了一陣子就看到很多人 PO 照片說他們已經買了西瓜。
The unintentional advert the CDC did is just as effective as every single accidental campaign they have done.
The active cases are less than 100 now. Unlike last holiday, I haven’t seen any reports reported people went to crowded places without keeping social distance or wearing masks. Instead, my friend sent me a picture that tourists kept the perfect social distance, so did cats!
待解除隔離的案例已經少於 100 了。我還沒看到什麼報導指出跟上次清明連假一樣很多人去擁擠的地方且沒有保持社交距離或戴口罩。相反地，有朋友傳了一張照片，裡面不但人跟人保持社交距離，貓也是。
Was it because our president is dominated by her cats? So the real governors of cats have to obey the instruction of keeping the social distance as a model for stupid humans?
A judgement of a murderer has a mental illness is considered as a fierce controversy. I’m gratified that this topic can be discussed now, not flooded by the news of the virus. Otherwise, our society can’t be improved.
The UK hospitals rejected 250 ventilators that made in China and potentially dangerous to coronavirus patients. Finally, they made a wise decision.
英國的醫院拒絕接受 250 個中國製造的呼吸器，因為有些潛在的危險會傷害武漢肺炎的病人。英國終於做了一個明智的決定。
I talked with an American that she gave me a new perspective which was out of my logic. She said she didn’t believe the USA had confirmed over one million cases of the coronavirus. She thought there were some conspiracies behind that the USA misreported the irrelevant cases to the coronavirus.
I have to say, it’s a way the China propaganda would use.
- Faking figures is the worst way for a democracy because it’s impossible to control the actual numbers from so many medical personnel, and not to mention Trump can’t even force people to stay at home, and the states have their own autonomy! Only a dictatorship deems this is the way to deal with the virus. Like China.
- It’s irrational that if the USA faked the figures to a higher number, why did they increase the number to make a stock market crash?
Taiwan has been bombed with lots of misinformation from China, I think most of the young generation are skilful at distinguishing rumours compared to other countries that they almost like a flock of sheep.
